  3. Brilliant.... always been a fan of your work since I saw your Bombay Local. Looking forward to the progress you make on this.
  4. Looking forward to seeing production samples.
  5. You're not wrong about that... but the last ones produced were a few years ago. And TBH they aren't anywhere near the standards we expect these days. It needs a re-tool, it really needs to be done from scratch. Graham Farish or Dapol really need to do a Class 87 and a Class 90. Though seeing how amazing the Class 68 was from Dapol, I'd rather have Dapol do it than Graham Farish.
  6. There's no GA locos on the market. Graham Farish's Class 90 is old and IMHO quite basic and full of errors. It's not a model that can be improved with a little work. It's something that needs a complete retool, and being a Bachmann product at the end of the day, we have no idea when we'll get one. It's been a good few years since we last saw some of them anyway. I wish Dapol would take on the Class 87 and Class 90 in N scale, since the Class 86, 87 and 90 all share the same wheelsbase, they can be smart about it and create a brand new chassis that fits all. In the process they will get an updated chassis for the Class 86 as well.
  7. Chances are the thousand or so people who actually did buy the GT3 from KRM are least bothered by the lack of hubcaps. They either don't know that it's there (despite it's size), or they are more than happy with the compromise.
  8. Sorry for hijacking the thread, but rather than start a new thread, I thought I'd ask here.... What colour would the Stone-Faiveley pantograph be when new? What colour would the insulators be? And what colour would the other insulators and pipping on the roof of a Class 86 be when brand new? TIA
  9. Heljan have shared artwork for the O gauge Class 47...
  10. Any got images of a freshly painted Virgin Trains Class 86? Cannot seem to find any online. TIA
  11. I know this may not be RoS' approach, but it would be nice if they told us how far along the EOIs have come. I'm sure it will encourage many to put in another order or so if things seem to be working out.
  12. I'm sorry...are you quoting DJ Trump or DJ Models?
  13. They are tampo-printed graphics, not decals. AFAIK one of the only instance where Hornby used a decal in recent times was for the Hitachi demonstrator Class 800 IEP units. The wave in the text is caused by the tampo-printing pad either slipping or being under a little too much force that it moves away as those pads are a sponge/rubber based.
